Following a successful trial, law firm Mishcon de Reya has deployed Solcara’s KnowHow and SolSearch software products within its UK business.

Mishcon chose Solcara over other products, due to its desire for effective knowledge management and enhanced internal communications and a need for a solution which fitted in with its existing IT systems.

Caren Gestetner, the Partner at Mishcon de Reya with responsibility for Knowledge Management commented on the deal: “As a rapidly growing law firm providing a diverse range of legal services to businesses and individuals, effective knowledge sharing is key to our continued success. We were looking for a knowledge management platform which would facilitate retrieval of knowledge and enhance internal communications in line with our growth. We were attracted to Solcara for its federated search capability, enabling fee earners to retrieve materials through a single search of internal and external materials. Since our new intranet launched, feedback within the firm has been universally positive, with both lawyers and support staff finding it easy to use.”

Solcara’s MD Rob Martin added:

“Knowledge management is of vital importance to legal firms, given the volume of information passing their way. Any firm that wants to be at the cutting edge and have an advantage over their competition these days need to have access to the best tools to do the job. In the world of law, speedy access to resources can make all the difference and Solcara’s KnowHow and SolSearch do give distinct advantages over competitors.”
